Good morning everyone police -- on heightened alert after federal authorities warned of a potential terrorist threat.
Linked to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks this comes as the world prepares to reflect on the life changing events from ten years ago.
Adam Shapiro is standing by near ground zero with more -- Good morning again -- we are here -- here -- regarding those up potential terrorist attacks on the United States they are according to the government.
Credible but unconfirmed what they're looking for a three many think both English and Arabic and the forces the intelligence coming out of Pakistan.
That these -- individuals are planning some kind.
Bomb whether be in its proper -- targeting either Washington DC or New York so again.
The government saying credible but not firm now.
Here at ground zero this weekend and there will be several events to commemorate that anniversary.
Of the 9/11.

To rebuild this thank you see the 9/11 memorial that commemorating.

But also included in this memorial at the 184 who died at the Pentagon and the forty who died aboard United Airlines flight 93 when He crashed.
Into the ground in Shanksville Pennsylvania also part of the memorial are those folks.
Who died in the a terrorist attack in the early 1990s -- republic car bomb.

On Sunday Mayor Bloomberg will be here along with the president as well as President George Bush.

Thanks Adam and you know out of having covered the five year anniversary of the footprints there that the that the -- -- -- almost completely -- -- and it's amazing to see the kind of privacy estimated despite years of.
If it is amazing to see the progress and I was here I think it was 2007 when the first -- went into the ground floor one World Trade Center.
And it is then something -- always -- joy but I'm glad to see 78 stories now.
Ditto -- on that and thank you.
And President Obama laid out -- 450 billion dollar plan last night to put unemployed Americans back to work.
The legislation calls for tax cuts topping 200 billion dollars and 140 billion dollars in spending.
The president also wants to extend unemployment benefits for another year.
Which would cost about 62 billion dollars -- -- components of the bill have bipartisan support so it should be passed right away.
There should be nothing controversial about this people are just like everything in here.
Is the kind of proposal that's been supported by both Democrats.
Including many who sit here tonight.
And everything in this bill will be paid for.
The president didn't say how the legislation will be paid for but He did say -- release a detailed plan in the coming days.
Republicans are already skeptical of the president's plan but how -- Americans feel left -- last night's speech.
Ashley Webster's -- -- Labor Department office in Queens actually what's the mood like there.
Well Diane I think so unemployment office in Queens will be open -- -- less than half an hour now we visited this site several times just to get that -- the mood if you like.
Of the people here in this particular community and then does certainly with -- talk to many people who have always been very skeptical that had a hard time finding work.
Fourteen million Americans are out of work and then of course we have the -- from the president last night so -- gonna be out here today we're gonna get some feedback on what these people think but let's be honest.
The public is very wary of all the -- -- all the politics coming out of Washington.
So I would imagine there's a good amount of skepticism President Obama last night saying we need to put this political circus to an end.
The talk is cheap certainly the jobs bill is and as you say.
450 billion dollars the president emphasizing the need to help those people who have been out of work for six months old ball and that is a growing number -- Some people just simply dropping off the rolls giving up so the question is can this jobs bill get these people back to work the president talk about spending on roads fixing schools hiring more teachers.
-- it felt filter down to the people here in these communities that really need work that is the big question will be talking to those folks today Diane.
